  • Total Time: 15 minutes


Units Scale
  • 125 grams (1 Cup) All-Purpose Flour/ Plain Flour
  • 4oz (1/2 Cup) Salted Butter, at room temperature
  • 66 grams (1/3 Cup) Granulated Sugar
  • 66 grams (1/3 Cup) Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Teaspoons of Milk, plus more if needed
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 80 grams (1/2 Cup) Chocolate Chips
  • Optional add-ins: try roasted nuts and chopped nuts, M&M's, raisins, cranberries!


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F/180C and sprinkle the flour into an even layer on a sheet pan. When the oven is preheated bake the flour for 5 minutes to heat treat it, this prevents any potential bacteria from forming. Let the flour cool completely before proceeding with the rest of the recipe. 
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or a large bowl with a handheld electric whisk beat the butter and sugars for 2-3 minutes, until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl to ensure everything is evenly combined. 
  3. Add the pure vanilla extract and milk then mix to combine. 
  4. Gently mix in the flour and salt. If your batter is too thick add a splash of milk. Then mix in chocolate chips. 
  5. Serve immediately or store leftovers in an air-tight container in the fridge, keep in mind it will harden a lot in the fridge, as the butter resolidifies, so let it thaw on the counter for a while before indulging! The cookie dough will keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or you can freeze it in a freeze-safe container for up to a month.
